I have to tag onto this thread. When you finish, are you going to try a turbo set up on the 6.2L by chance?

Couldn't you find a bigger trailer? Doesn't look like much of a load for a V10....
(Course you could fill it with bricks).

There are people who live in smaller trailers than that.

Are you serious???? What MPG do you average with 93? I have the same tune but have not used it due to sticker shock at the pump....

Very sorry, I forgot to elaborate.

That 18% MPG increase is around town, full stop-and-go.

I get 5-5.5 with 87 octane, either Mike's performance tune, or completely stock.

With his 93 octane tune, I get a solid 6.5.

Since almost 95% of my driving is stop-and-go, this is a win-win for me.

I plan on going on a 750+ mile trip soon into Upstate New York and will be using the 93 octane performance tune. I will carefully calculate mileage and see what happens.
